saraskitchen: (pork roast)
Some of my favorite summer slow-cooker recipes. Plus, one for baked beans that'll take more time than the ready-canned but are slightly healthier.

1 can of kidney beans
1/4 cup ketchup (I use the organic kind)
1 tablespoon brown sugar
1 small onion or 1/2 large onion, chopped
Several dashes of Worcestershire sauce

Toss everything into the slow cooker (don't drain the beans) and mix. Cook on high for about an hour before switching to low, stirring every so often. In my experience they're even better than the canned brands.
saraskitchen: (matzo ball soup)
2 chicken breasts, with or without bones
2 carrots, sliced and peeled
2 celery stalks, chopped
1 small to medium onion, chopped
Dill, parsley, pepper and salt
Chicken giblets (you can only get these from either a butcher or a package of whole chicken)
1 cup of your favorite noodles or pasta

Instructions )
saraskitchen: (soup and sandwich)
2 cups elbow maccaroni
1 cup American cheese
1/4 cup of shredded cheddar cheese (optional)
1 can of peas
2/3 cup fried onions

This one is pretty simple )

You know those fried chicken cutlets you get at the deli? Here's a healthier, cheaper version!

1 package thin-sliced boneless chicken breasts or cutlets
1 cup bread crumbs
1/2 cup flour (optional)
Roughly 1 tbsp your spice or spices of choice. I use parsley and a little bit of pepper myself.
Vegetable or olive oil
1 or 2 eggs
1/4 cup of milk

The how-to )

Cooking in batches is recommended, the leftovers make great sandwiches.
